The Eye Book: Eyes and Eye Problems Explained
Liverpool University Press, 2000 - 212 pagina's
This work offers an overview of eye health for anyone needing to wear glasses, for parents of children with eye problems, and for students considering training in orthoptics. The structure and function of the eye, and the mechanisms of vision are explained, with illustrations. Eye problems, eye diseases and their treatment are examined, and the function of different eye care professionals is explained. The world-wide problem of blindness and visual impairment, affecting at least 50 million people, is raised, and suggestions for future treatment are offered. Modern and future medical techniques are also described, including laser treatment, transplantation of cells, and rejuvenation therapy which may give the possibility of restoring diminished sight. Professor Grierson also takes the reader through the history of eye care, including discussion of eye problems of famous people, from King Harold and Lord Nelson to Paul Cezanne, James Joyce, Stevie Wonder and Dennis Taylor.
